3 Reasons Why Live Chat is The Untapped Source of Leads for Dealerships

Today, people are seeing live chat as the main way to go. Rather than watching potential customers click away from their websites, many dealers have been adding live chat support. As it turns out, live chat has the ability to provide the convenient answers that customers want, while also adding significant benefits to the staff and bottom line of companies.

Do you know customers main reasons for choosing live chat over phone?

  • No hold time
  • Convenience

Live chat support systems do an excellent job of allowing you to respond to customer queries in real-time while addressing potential customer concerns before they are spread all over the internet.

In this post we’re going to get into why live chat can improve your dealer’s bottom line and how you can get started.

  1. Live Chat is Convenient for Car Buyers

A study called “Making Proactive Chat Work” that was conducted by Forrester Research found that:

“Many online consumers want help from a live person while they are shopping online; in fact, 44% of online consumers say that having questions answered by a live person while in the middle of an online purchase is one of the most important features a Web site can offer.

A live chat system provides customers immediate access to help. Additionally, the pain of having to dial a 1-800 number and navigate through a maze of numeric options is non-existent.

An emarketer.com survey found that 63% of visitors were more likely to return to a website that offers live chat.

  1. Live Chat Increases Leads and Sales

Gubagoo has created (B.E.A.S.T.) an engine to detect onsite user intent. In the case of live chat, this engine can be used to identify the right moment to inject live chat support. It also includes intelligent analytics which can be leveraged to learn which pages customers are visiting, how long they’re staying on that page, and how they got there.

Live chat systems will never replace a live customer experience but they can be enhanced to become more effective, more intelligent and more efficient at the time of converting these leads into sales.

  1. Live Chat Gives You An Advantage over Your Competition

If you want to gain an edge on the competition, live chat is a key feature that websites must have in order to be competitive and to hopefully rise to the top. In fact, live chat provides a simple way to connect with customers who spend a good deal of their time shopping online.

If you aren’t convinced that live chat is for your business, give us a call and let us send you some stats and some of our client’s success stories. The cost savings and convenience for both staff and customers makes live chat not only a viable option for businesses today, but an essential tool for any dealer or company that thrives on providing excellent customer service.

 

Reasons why you should consider outsourcing to Gubagoo your Live Chat.

Live chat can obviously increase your business potential, but only if it’s executed correctly. Here are some important reasons why you should consider Gubagoo for your dealer’s website and how you can make the most out of live chat software:

  • No need to hire more staff or Train your team! – Our live chat representatives are extremely knowledgeable about your inventory and website navigation. They have the experience and knowledge to get the right answer to your customer’s questions quickly. Live chat is different from a phone call, since all replies must be short sentences that get right to the point. Long paragraphs don’t work in live chat. There is an art to knowing when to ask a question and when to offer solutions or additional products.
  • They are aware of your shopping hours. But that is not a limiting factor anymore. Don’t assume 9 to 5 or 9-9 chat hours will work. Our Chat is available 24/7 to cover off hours, Holidays, etc., so you don’t miss any more customers or leads.
  • We are not automated or robotic. The whole point of having live chat available is to provide warm, human help to a customer’s shopping experience. Having robotic greetings or responses can kill the effectiveness of live chat. At Gubagoo, we are 100% human.
  • We also help boost your social. Our Chat Software / Widget also offers links to your main Social Media sites, encouraging visitors to visit, like or subscribe to your YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • We are prepared for surges in chat volume.Customers need to understand that they are in a queue and a representative will be with them shortly. Why not immediately?. We have the right amount of people ready to help convert visitors into buyers, no waiting time, no queue, no exception.
  • Give your dealer helpful chat features.When you get a lead resulting from our chat, you also get the full transcript!, links to pages your customer visited, vehicles they looked at, etc. Because we understand that is not only the quantity but also the quality of that lead that will help you convert it to a sale.

Gubagoo’s New TalkSmart Drives ‘Smart’, High-Converting Phone Leads

TalkSmart integrates advanced telephony into Gubagoo’s analytics-driven website chat and communications platform

West Palm Beach, FL – September 16, 2014  Gubagoo Inc.’s new TalkSmartsm is designed to drive ‘smart,’ high-converting phone leads. Integrated into Gubagoo’s analytics-driven website chat and communications platform, TalkSmart closes the loop on customer communications via dealership websites. TalkSmart caters to the large percentage of consumers who say that talking to a live person is still their top communications preference, while also helping dealerships ensure that they never miss a car sale because they have missed a call (research shows that at least 20% of a dealership’s call go unanswered).

“In the rush to make websites function at their best, it is important that dealers don’t forget about the oldest kind of chat – the good old-fashioned phone call. TalkSmart is designed to help transform a dealership website from a ‘dead-zone’ into a conversation-packed, lead-generating arena,” said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo Inc.

A 24/7 phone concierge solution with a ‘brain,’ TalkSmart, like Gubagoo’s chat solution, ChatSmart, is powered by an innovative analytics/tracking engine and inventory-matching platform. And, like ChatSmart, which is showing huge conversion, lead and sales increases for dealerships, TalkSmart is already driving significant results.

Larry H. Miller Used Car Supermarket of Sandy, Utah has been utilizing TalkSmart. Says Internet Sales Manager, Doug Webb: “TalkSmart is vital for any store that doesn’t have the proper staffing in place to handle the call volume. Additionally, for bigger stores with BDC’s, it’s an essential backstop tool to make sure you’re able to set the appointment.”

According to research, plenty of customers still want to talk with a real, live person (71 percent of consumers say talking with a live agent over the phone was still the top preference*). And, with smartphones increasingly dominating the digital universe, phone calls are on the rise in dealerships. According to ADP, phone calls are now outpacing e-mail or form leads by a 4:1 ratio (a rise from 2:1 in January). And, in the last two years, phone leads are up 46% versus Internet leads.

With TalkSmart, when a dealership website visitor wants to connect on the phone, he/she will be talking to someone who already knows what he/she wants because Gubagoo agents have a transparent window into the exact cars or dealer services that the website visitor was already researching. The phone agents can then intelligently discuss, automatically display, and send offers / incentives on relevant dealer inventory. Dealerships can use TalkSmart as their first-ring, 24/7 call solution or just for after-hours; either way the U.S.-based agents set sales and service appointments, and after each call the TalkSmart platform seamlessly delivers back to the dealership (CRM systems) these extremely hot, information-packed leads, for follow-up.

 

More on How TalkSmart Works:

  • Before a dealer site visitor dials, Gubagoo’s Behavioral Engagement and Scoring Technology (the B.E.A.S.T.) has already relentlessly tracked that visitor’s site behavior (the exact cars they looked at, pages visited, etc.). So, no matter who takes the call, whether in-dealership staff or outsourced TalkSmart call center agents, that customer’s rich profile is always right in front of them – ensuring efficient, relevant, high-converting conversations out of the gate.
  • TalkSmart also identifies if incoming calls are for sales or service and can screen callers to transfer to the right department. Additionally, all dealership info is baked right into the platform: hours, location/directions, etc.
  • Because TalkSmart integrates Gubagoo’s patent-pending Inventory Control and Vehicle Matching platforms, which predictively match the right in-stock dealer inventory to that customer, dealer salespeople and call center agents can discuss and share online, live, relevant inventory feeds/views (with pictures and vehicle details) all married to the right offers/incentives. This vehicle-matching technology also helps dealers move the oldest inventory, because it puts the relevant, aged vehicles first in line. In general, because agents are informed and can be instantly responsive to consumer questions, the likelihood of gathering contact info, and setting test drive and showroom visits, rises dramatically.
  • During or after the call TalkSmart’s system allows agents to send emails displaying relevant inventory, with the right incentives/offers, with just a click – again, spotlighting the aged inventory first.
  • After every call, the dealership is sent all these highly motivated leads, with the caller’s contact info, the vehicles they’re interested in, and a complete transcript of the call. The TalkSmart platform seamlessly inserts all this data into a dealer’s CRM system to make following up on these sales opportunities easy.
  • Dealers have total flexibility in set-up: they can choose to use the TalkSmart call center for all incoming calls – turn it on for just after-hours – or to take every showroom and service department call after the fourth ring, to protect against missed opportunities and frustrated customers.
  • Every TalkSmart agent is U.S.-based, and for both of Gubagoo’s telephony and chat channels, operators that speak numerous languages are available, and instant translations are built into the platform.
